North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un exhibited his arsenal of weapons Tuesday and vowed to create an “invincible” military in response to what he says is the U.S. failure to act on its promise of showing no hostile intent, state-run media reported.

“The U.S. has frequently signaled it’s not hostile to our state, but there is no action-based evidence to make us believe that they are not hostile,” Kim said, according to the official Korean Central News Agency. “The U.S. is continuing to create tensions in the region with its wrong judgments and actions.”

According to the state media, Kim said the U.S. is the “source” of instability on the Korean Peninsula. Kim added that the U.S. is “hypocritical” for helping South Korea deter North Korea by using nuclear weapons while seeking denuclearization from North Korea.

North Korea’s arsenal of nuclear weapons has often been a point of tension between the isolated country and the U.S. 

Kim repeatedly claims his weaponry is for self-defense and his country’s most important objective is possessing an “invincible military capability” that no one can dare challenge, the Associated Press reported

The Biden administration has repeatedly tried engaging in nuclear disarmament negotiations with North Korea, inviting Kim to conversations that can happen “any time, anywhere” and “without preconditions.”

"We are not discussing war with anyone, but rather to prevent war itself and to literally increase war deterrence for the protection of national sovereignty," Kim said.

North Korea’s display of its array of weapons occurred the day after the 76th anniversary of its ruling Workers Party. This was one of the biggest displays of weaponry North Korea has staged in recent years, the New York Times noted
